Yesterday I spotted this tweet from Nextness editor Jessica Stanley (@dailydoseofjess), and it made me weirdly nostalgic for a long lost time… on Facebook.
When I was a teenager, Livejournal was the social network of choice, although we wouldn’t have described it that way. (We also didn’t call it “blogging” until at least 2006, though The Social Network tells it otherwise.) Trends then moved on via MySpace and on to Facebook where this type of group-making, keen one-click sharing and, of course, ubiquitous game spamming, were the norm.
What I’m left to wonder is this: did we quieten down? Have our habits matured? Or did we simply get older? (Actually, don’t answer that.)
